In just 20 minutes, this simple Keto Shrimp Scampi meal is ready! For a great dinner, serve it with low-carb pasta or cauliflower rice.
The.com is this Keto Shrimp Scampi. Garlic, lemon, olive oil, and Parmesan are all present in plenty. Your weeknight dinner rotation will quickly include this one-pan recipe. Wait until you try 20-minute supper dishes if you thought 30-minute meals were good.
Shrimp scampi is one of the best low-carb, keto dinner recipes there is, in my opinion.
If you serve this scampi with my 10-minute keto spaghetti noodles, the entire meal will contain only 4 NET CARBS.
The shrimp scampi at Red Lobster doesn’t compare to this low-carb version, which I realise will seem a little over the top. Furthermore, if you serve it on these keto cheddar bay biscuits, you’ll feel as though you’re eating at a restaurant.
When making the delicious sauce for shrimp scampi, certain recipes frequently utilize chicken broth instead of the only four ingredients listed:
lime juice with olive oil
a light wine
Scampi shouldn’t be cooked with broth, unless you want to make the dish alcohol-free. Then it’s a fantastic trade.

In a cast-iron skillet that is 10″ or bigger and is set to medium heat, add the butter and olive oil. Once hot, add the onion and simmer for 3–5 minutes, until tender and transparent.
Cook for about 30 seconds, or until the garlic is aromatic, before adding the red pepper flakes, Italian seasoning, and lemon zest.
After that, add white wine and lemon juice and boil for about 5 minutes to decrease sauce.
Put shrimp. Simmer for three minutes(turn pink). Put salt and pepper to the food.
Garnish with parmesan cheese and parsley.
The fact that this recipe is so minimal in carbohydrates is perhaps its best feature. With only 1 NET CARB per serving, this keto shrimp scampi allows you to consume large quantities while still adhering to the keto diet.
HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE WHOLE30 COMPLIANT AND PALEO
The Parmesan cheese should be omitted, more olive oil should be used in place of the butter, and vegetable or chicken broth should be used in place of the dry white wine.

The Shrimp Scampi’s History
As you are aware, shrimp scampi is not an Italian tradition. It actually started when Italian immigrants arrived in the US and changed their Italian recipes to use American ingredients. Food culture fusion always begins with migratory trends.
Traditional Shrimp Scampi in Italy was prepared with, well, scampi. Scampi, commonly referred to as langoustines, are tiny, lobster-like crustaceans. Scampi were swiftly fried with garlic and olive oil in the dish’s traditional style.
Some chefs give the meal an additional twist by including breadcrumbs, tomatoes, tarragon, or tomatoes. So fascinating!
To see what occurs, we can try adding some tomatoes and tarragon the next time.
Therefore, I advise buying frozen shrimp unless you want to prepare this scampi the same day you buy the shrimp.
Additionally, if you use frozen shrimp, be sure to completely thaw them before beginning this recipe!
